That's not corn in the picture, that's wheat!

Yeah, yeah, I know, it's the difference between UK English and US English. But still, that's wheat, not corn!

The fact that Indiana is the second largest US state in corn production might have something to do with my insistence that those are not corn plants... ;-)
